This past week the Daily Digger blog announced that lace bugs have arrived in Oregon. Gee! We already knew that, didn’t we?
Yes, I’ve been seeing the lace bug (Stephanitis pyrioides) damage in my coaching practice for at least 3 years now. Last summer seemed really bad. I’m guessing it’s because we are not used to these garden pests. We don’t know the signs, and we don’t know how to deal with them.
For more information on how to recognize them and deal with them, read my articles noted above or see OSU’s Alert announcement and fact sheet.
